happy 5th birthday campbell meg.

oh man. it was 5 years ago ~today~ that we welcomed our 2nd daugther, 3rd child, into the world. during campbell's pregnancy, they kept telling me that she wasn't growing, and well...of course i was...i remember being very upset, nervous and anxious...i would cry if people would ask too many questions, but with each ultrasound they recommended, and i did, was re-assured that this little miracle was growing just fine.

(if i can figure out how to use my scanner...i will try to scan some baby pics in here...no promises. :)  )

campbell was the smallest of ~my~ babies, weighing in at 7 lbs. 12 oz. my contractions started at 6:30 a.m.  we arrived at the birth center at 8 oclock, and beat the midwife, so we got to let ourselves in. :)  and campbell meg was born in the water at 8:32 a.m. matt came up just in time...he was down in the basement of the birthing center fixing something with the hot water...he must have gotton it fixed, because i did have hot water. :) it's so nice having a handy husband. :)

(campbell had taken a bite out of every apple...10 perhaps? while i was nursing calli)

it was kind of a crazy day today. back and forth. here and there. karolina, calli and i took a special birthday treat into preschool. campbell's choice, after changing her mind many times was:  ice cream sandwiches, goldfish crackers, orange juice boxes, and gummy butterflies.

she then got to spend some time with moppy...as i had Good News Club to go to.
then we headed to Chili's for dinner.
they have the choice of what to have for dinner, or where to go...
i do try to slightly "coach" them to choose the latter of the options. :)


campbell has brought us much joy. she is usually full of bubbly joy, well, and when she's not...she does have a mean streak in her, so watch out. i love her laugh. it is contagious. i love her smile. i love.love.love her sense of style...she picks out about every outfit she wears...those who see her, know...she puts together patterns and colors one mommy might not pick, but she pulls it off. i still trump on the holidays, for now. :) campbell is a teeny bit sensitive. she loves preschool. she loves learning. she loves.loves.loves to color, and is very good at staying in the lines. she likes fancy nancy. she loves being treated "special', one on one times are a good way into campbell's heart. she is a great sister, especially to karolina.



well campbell...here's to watching your life unfold. may you always trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on ~your~ understanding...but in all your ways aknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. we love you.
